Dumb Show

By Mike Johnson

 

Holed up in a Canterbury farmhouse is a family under siege from within -- Grandfather in self-imposed exile; Father with a mind overwhelmed by shell-shock; Pito, a spirit that won't sleep; self-righteous Aunt Grin; and a litany of other dysfunctional bullies. But as the past begins to unravel, bones surface, the dumb shows play out, the powers shift and the characters' lives are transformed.
